UIP will continue to contribute to safety and competitiveness of the rail sector

One year ago, on 29 June 2009, the terrible accident at Viareggio, Northern Italy has hit the whole railway sector in Europe. Although it was and is clear, that the railways are the most safe land transport mode, and therefore the most appropriate means of transport for dangerous goods, this accident has triggered recent activities of the sector, where UIP was and is very present. UIP’s active participation in the discussions after the terrible accident at Viareggio was always in support of proposed changes to further enhance railway safety. UIP remembers again with great emotion the 32 victims and several injured.
